I've just caught up with this two part drama about the German U-Boat which torpedoed a ship which they thought was carrying only Allied troops but which also had women and children on board as passengers.

The U-Boat commander's first instinct was to do the humanitarian thing and rescue as many as possible.

It made for a gripping three hours viewing, and this evening there was a programme in which survivors of that event in 1942 talked about their memories.

Thanks for this Eileen, I couldn't remember the name of the two part series to look it up on catch up, I've heard it was very good and moving so will check it out.

Yes, it was very good. I was googling the true story when it was on and it's quite faithful.
